Hi, RESCON readers. Hope you’re enjoying the dog days of summer.
I would like to highlight some of the content that you’ll find in today’s newsletter, starting off with the number 45.
I’m not talking about the number Michael Jordan wore during his first comeback from retirement. This is the number that our director of technical standards, Michael Steele, came up with to highlight how many government entities – legislation, administrative authorities, commissions, councils, agencies, ministries and codes – that we in the residential construction industry have to deal with.
And while Steele came up with his number with a lot of deliberation, he admits that the number could be higher. Our industry is covered in red tape, so Steele was determined to take on the challenge of identifying every government entity and and the myriad of regulations that every builder must deal with.
It’s a fascinating read for anyone in our industry, so I recommend that you have a look at his column below and let us know if we missed anything – email email@example.com.
My latest column in the Toronto Sun concludes our editorial coverage on RESCON’s trip to Scandinavia as we focus on housing innovation in Sweden, RESCON VP Andrew Pariser returns with his health and safety column, and easing GTA gridlock is a theme shared by three items below involving our infrastructure affiliate, the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario.
Please drop us a line. We love hearing from our readers: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Have a great long weekend!
